Running Stateful Applications with Bare-Metal Performance Using Containers - Goutham Rao, Portworx

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Containers provide a better way of packaging and deploying Applications directly onto bare metal servers. In this informative session, Portworx CTO Gou Rao will show you how to take advantage of Containers to deploy Applications and achieve greater performance through hyperconvergence.

By provisioning storage infrastructure using SDS directly onto the servers hosting the containerized Applications, you can co-reside compute with storage and yet retain the manageability of the Applications through Containers.

This approach -- called container-defined storage -- frees Dev and Ops to manage Applications, not hardware. Storage can be spun up instantaneously, simplifying work in and out of production. It runs natively on premises, in the Cloud, and in Linux environments, utilizing the bare-metal performance of x86 servers to avoid the unnecessary overhead of VMs.
